Gint-A-Cuffs 3: Pack 16-18

Let's knock three more of these out. I've got a long way to go if I'm going to match the 237 points Nachos Grande put up. I need almost 9.5 points per pack just to tie.

Points through 15 packs: 152

Pack 16



133 Geno Auriemma (-1, sworn enemy of Pat Summit)
Going backwards isn't going to help.

48 Francisco Liriano (0 points)
211 Francisco Rodriguez (0 points)
I should get some kind of points for pulling back to back Franciscos
257 Andrew Bailey (0 points)
167 Adam LaRoche (0 points)
193 Jorge De La Rosa (0 points)




40 John McEnroe (+2 ad back mini, -1 Mc#$%^#$&$Roe= +1 overall)
Thankfully, it was an ad back mini




HH70 Troy Tulowitzki Hometown Heroes (+2 favorite player of Johnny from Cards from the Quarry, +1 Hometown Heroes = +3)

Pack 16 total: 3 points (A new low for the box)
Through 16 packs: 155 points

Pack 17

149 Lars Anderson (0 points)
276 Desmond Jennings (0 points)
212 Aramis Ramirez (0 points)
114 Brandon Phillips (0 points)
195 Tommy Hanson (0 points)
154 Todd Helton (0 points)




200 Josh Hamilton (+5 mini of my favorite player)
Thank you Community Gum boys! You pulled the right box for me!




HH34 Chipper Jones Hometown Heroes (+1)

Pack 17 total: 6 points
Through 17 packs: 161 points


Pack 18

293 Prince William & Kate Middleton (0 points) oooooooooooooooooh!
77 Rafael Furcal (0 points)




66 Starlin Castro (+2 favorite player of Card Anathema)

199 Jake Peavy (0 points)



AOM11 Ascent of Man Amphibians (+1)




310 Matt Kemp (+2 SP, +2 favorite player of Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle = +4 points)




PP5 Portraits of Penultimacy The Hare (+3)
I pulled the same card in pack 5.



FF6 Floating Fortresses HMS Indefatigable (+2)

Pack 18 total: 12 points (That's a little better)
Through 18 packs: 173 points

That was a three pack total of 21 points, well short of the 28 points I needed to stay on pace to overtake Nachos Grande. I have one hit to go so we'll see what happens.
